315 Restaurant & Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews

Food is touch and go, but this time excellent. We never know what to expect, but make it a third tier choice and not usually disappointed. So, not a glaringly good review, but we'll go back after we after we hit up our favorites for a few months. Ambiance gets poor because depending on where you sit it's loud enough that you have to strain to hear your dining companions. Last night, there was a few "hound dogs" at a table in the small room we were in and they were annoyingly loud and bordering on obnoxious... then again, you can't expect everyone to be mindful of other guests.

Attended Piedmont Wine Dinner -- food, wine, service all superb. Kitchen willing and able to accommodate minor food allergies. Bistro 315 is easy to like, easy to enjoy and is on the list of Santa Fean top restaurants to visit with locals and friends from out of town.

Given the innumerable great eating options in Santa Fe, I recommend that you skip 315. Well past its glory days, the place and the staff are tired and worn. Service is over-solicitious but hollow. Some of our dishes were excellent, but the creepy overall experience ensures we never would return.

Have gone to Santa Fe over the last 20 years. Found 315, 20 years ago and forgot the name. Have been looking for it every time we go back. Googled best mussles in town and there it was!! So blessed to have revisited!!

Very popular spot. We started inside where a large group was soon seated next to us. When we requested to be moved to a quiet spot, we were quickly wisked to a quiet table outside where we enjoyed a wonderful meal. The hostess even came by later to assure we were satisfied. The halibut with succotash was outstanding !

This was the worst dinning experience we have had. The crabcake appetizer was extremely small with limit D crab and had no taste. The veal chop was grizzly, impossible to cut. By the time another veal was brought to the table I rejected it as my wife had completed her dinner.
Lastly, the staff was nasty and rude. On the way out, a waiter cursed at me. No one in management attempted to correct the issues.
Never. Never. Never would I recommend this restaurant.

I normally don't write reviews, but I felt that this restaurant merited an exception. Our first experience in July was so-so. We went back only because we had a gift certificate. I am glad we did. The service was outstanding as was the lease with some unusual dishes for a Franch style bistro.

My issue is specific: more and more Santa Fe restaurants, and ones like 315 who have a certain reputation to maintain, take the easy way out: just throw garlic in every single dish, no matter what the other content---it is cheap , easy to use and it shows a dreadful lack of imagination on the part of chefs.
The last time I ate at 315, there were options on the menu that did not include garlic. This time there were almost none.
If you dine in France, one dish in 20 will have garlic: here the reverse is the case. What a shame and how boring it must be for a creative chef.

Sat on the patio and the waitress was a bit brusque at the beginning but loosened up a bit as the evening wore on. Sat on the lovey patio and enjoyed a fantastic meal. I had the special Veal Scallopini which was delicious. All in my party were quite pleased with their meal!

This restaurant is located in the same Adobe house that belonged to my grandmother many years ago. My sister and I met our cousins there for dinner on a recent trip to Santa Fe. We were seated adjacent to what was actually the dinning room in my grandmothers house. The staff was very accommodating and didn't rush us into ordering. It was a very leisurely evening in which we shared some fond memories of the house and our grandparents. The food was very good. I had a nice baby greens salad and the stuffed squash blossoms. My sister had the lamb which she said was very good. The flourless chocolate cake was outstanding. The waiter also recommended a very nice Chardonnay.

315 is a very special restaurant. It has quaint feeling about it that throughout, from the patio, into the bar and restaurant. The bar is wonderful for Happy Hour. Small, dark, good music and great drinks. The menu during Happy Hour is fun and quite good. The oysters on half shell are beautiful! We love that we can bring our dog to dine on the patio and the service is always friendly. My husband was disappointed on our visit because he had the steak and frites and the potatoes were inedible they were so overcooked and hard. We think it would have been nice to apologize and offer to bring out a fresh order as quickly as possible. Something they should consider next time.

Though the menu items are not very creative, the food is tasty and the ingredients are high quality. We shared a very good crab cake for an appetizer and I had soft shell crabs for dinner--a little skimpy with just two, but good nonetheless. The service was very good.

I was served a bone in pork chop which was a "special". While it was enormous it was the toughest, most impossible to cut and to chew piece of meat I have ever encountered anywhere. They refer to a football as a pigskin and this cut of meat was similar in its chew ability. I won't be returning to this restaurant.
We went early, and had a very quiet dinner. More people came in later, but it was not intrusive. The specials were the best - pork bellies appetizer was phenomenal. Nothing was less than excellent, but the pork bellies really stood out. Service was excellent, and very knowledgeable about the menu.
Return visit to an old favorite
We returned to Bistro 315 for the first time in over 5 years last weekend and wondered why we had been gone for so long. The food was top notch and so was the service. There were numerous specials which used fresh seasonal vegetables and fresh delicious seafood. We specially loved the halibut in veloute, with morels, ramps, mushrooms etc. It was the perfect complement to a perfectly pan fried slice of halibut. The crispy calimari Caesar was excellent, as well. The fresh soft shell crabs were small and delicious, though I would have preferred some batter other than tempura on them. Still I ate every morsel.
We had a delicious Pinot Blanc served by a knowledgeable server and are looking forward to a return trip soon.
Amazing Menu, but...
First, the service could not be better. And even though the menu is amazing, the prices are pretty stiff; but the Bar Menu is terrific and a good value. Take friends, sample from the terrific wine list, and share the not-so-small plates on the bar menu. And don't forget to check out the paintings. Beautiful on their own, they make the experience.
Wonderful dinner with Friends!
We had a wonderful dinner with friends at 315. I love that in addition to their "regular" menu, they have quite an extensive "specials" menu on chalkboards that they bring to your table. Everyone was very nice, and we got to meet the chef! I highly recommend this restaurant!
We were looking for something different ...
We were looking for something different from New Mexican fare (we have been in New Mexico for 5 days). The only good thing about this restaurant was the bottle of wine we chose. The service was very strange- waiter read all of the menu to us and hovered strangely the whole meal. The food was just as strange - every sauce seemed off.
